    I know alot of you do the egg swapping thing and sometimes buy baby chicks from each other - I was just wondering who is related to who ? I know there are alot of blue orp baby's everywhere LOL
    if possible could you post pics and maybe the person you got them from could post pics of the parents - might be fun to see if they always look like the parents- especially the " mutts ".

    just thought it might be fun to see LOL


    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    Quote:I don't. It's an older picture. Actually, both our Blue Orps (Speckled's) look to
    be roos.

    Quote:Speckledhen, Suede is a beautiful boy. Did you hatch him from one of Bamachicks eggs or did you get him as a chick? I love the blue coloration. I think I want some. [​IMG]

    Smitty, the Blue Orp is only 3 weeks old right now. I'll take some
    pics when I get a chance. We are out in the barn tonight getting the
    bigger brooder ready for that batch to move out here.

    Suede would be the chic's dad (unless Speckledhen has more than
    one Blue Orp roo).

    PC is correct, Suede is the father of his chick. And I hatched Suede from eggs that came from Julie (BamaChicken).

    Wow! Speckledhen, I love the Blue Orps. I want some now. That is so cool that you hatched him.

    PC your chic is going to grow up to be a goodlooking chic no matter if it's a he or she.

    This so interesting to see all the generations. Thanks!
